    Default Sort of SPIN OFF - Would you attend a Wedding/function that said No kids?

    As the title suggests, for those with children would you attend a Wedding/Function if you couldn't take your children?

    Yep, I don't see the issue with the hosts not wanting children there.

    Yes, gives us a night to relax and enjoy without running after the kids... worrying about when they need to go to bed etc.

    I've been to a wedding that said no kids on the invite, people still brought their kids along. I didn't though, my DD stayed home with my dad.

    I think no kids at a wedding is hard to ask, especially if it's somewhere people have to travel to and don't know anyone who they trust to look after their child(ren)

    Yes, generally that doesn't extend to babies.

    If it did and I had a parent dependent baby, then I'd probably not go and I'd expect them to understand.

    Yep absolutely. I was never going to have kids at my wedding, then I got pregnant and everything changed.
    Can have more fun without kids

    Probably not as DS isn't great with babysitters.
